It’s been SIX weeks since my last pregnancy update. Between a few mini-vacations with the family and being a bit mopey and pouty about my lack of running, I haven’t had the heart to do an update. BUT, my back pain is almost totally gone and I’ve come to terms with the prospect of having to wait until post delivery to run again, so my mind and heart are in a better place.
Today marks the start of my 33rd week. Part of me still hasn’t fully accepted the fact that I could be holding a newborn in just 5-6 few weeks (I was a week early with my son).
Running – Not much to update here as I haven’t gone on a single run since July 9th. I have a chiropractor appointment today and am hopeful that we will be able to begin discussing a tentative timeline to return to running. The last few days have been glorious – almost no back pain and I’m finally walking without a silly limp. The hardest thing has been trying to stay positive and prevent the I feel crappy feeling from the lack of any sort of exercise (other than easy walking). Running GIVES me energy and makes me happy (as I’ve discussed in previous posts) so I’ve been trying my hardest to not let my lack of running get me down the last few weeks.
